1900 - Keishu - Shunga - Leg Lift
Authentic Meiji period, c.1900 original Japanese erotic art shunga woodblock print picture by Takeuchi Keishu (1861-1942). Shunga picture measures 18.7 cm x 12.3 cm. Great colors and impressions! Very good condition with just a small ink smudge at the very top left. No backing. Please refer to photos.
An excellent shunga woodblock print picture of a man lifting and holding up a leg of the Japanese beauty in order to penetrate her more deeply. To increase her enjoyment even further she manually pleasures herself while he's inside of her.
Takeuchi Keishu may not get as much recognition as his brethren counterparts of the Meiji Period, Tomioka Eisen and Ikeda Terukata, but of course, all three artists are considered the 'Big Three' in regards to Meiji Period shunga. Yet, Eisen and Terukata tend to get most of the accolades. Terukata is definitely a great artist and one of my personal favorites from that period, but Keishu's commissioned and thus, immaculate deluxe shunga series, Hazakura (Leaves of the Cherry Blossom), rivals any and all shunga artwork put forth during Japan's imperialistic era - no matter the other artist!
